  1. Thank you RU. This is the last thing I'm going to post about the subject because like I said, I hate writing and furthermore hate posting back and forth on message boards or twitter. The accusation of plagiarism courtside is leveling is completely ridiculous. As much as I hate writing, I also don't read very much, especially long posts or articles. The idea that I not only read enough of Courtside's posts to digest and paraphrase or just straight up plagiarize is laughable.
  2. httpBs://twitter.com/SLUWSoccer/status/1434589990827212802?s=2The SLU women's soccer twitter account posted both goals. After closely watching them it was determined both were back post headers. This is insane. This kind of stuff is why Ben Wiexelmann and Nate Latsch quit doing Billiken Report(besides the lack of monetary compensation).
  3. With all due respect, we both watched that game and the idea that if you keep putting pressure on you're going to make your own luck, is not some deep dive analysis. Peter and I both read this board and if he's like me most of it is on cruise control skimming posts so again if we're paraphrasing it's subconscious or just that we also had that same thought.
  4. I appreciate you taking the time to write out such detailed feedback and we will definitely discuss the points you've made as a way to improve our coverage. I will say this, Peter and I are both here participating in discussions and threads for all sports under our personal handles which, myself at least has tried to keep as an "open secret" that doesn't take much to figure out if you really want to. I am also pretty self conscious about my writing ability compared to my verbal skills(which are still barely above average). Personally I don't like writing and don't think I'm very good at it. I can't tell you how many times I've written out posts on this board and deleted them before posting. Same with twitter, it's just not worth it for me to get sucked into written discussions online. It's probably part laziness and part lack of an attention span. Also if I'm going to talk about something on the pod, I'd rather people listen to what I have to say there than read it here. When I do post it's generally silly and lighthearted stuff. I don't think Peter and I are ever intentionally referencing posts or regurgitating posts(unless they are our own) on purpose. I know personally I don't script much of anything, I have an outline in front of me with queues and just go with my opinion I'm feeling at that moment.
  5. I know this is a bit of a tongue in cheek post but in all seriousness this really does make me smile. -Z
  6. Billiken fans collectively got Travis to come on the pod. Flex that muscle and tweet at Larry to come on the podcast.
  7. Bumping this for those who may have missed it over the holiday yesterday.
  8. I have 4 tickets to Thursday's game vs Louisville if someone would like to use them. - Zac
  9. The above description is what happens when you edit and upload late at night. The description may be low quality but the interview is peak Billiken content I promise you. - Zac
  10. Go look at my face and I think less conspicuously Peter's face on the Youtube version when he said Salina.
  11. I can't stress enough how truly surreal this was. I totally understand if people prefer to listen to the audio only version while in the car or at work but man for us Billiken die hards it really is worth grabbing your favorite snack and/or your drink of choice, kicking back on the couch and watching it on youtube.
  12. Bumping this for two reasons: I'm excited to wake up at 4:30 for this interview and because I don't want anyone to miss a chance to submit a question.
  13. We've been asked if we could let the board know when we have a guest coming on and have posters suggest questions or topics. We have Kevin scheduled to record Wednesday morning. So if there's something you've always wanted to know this would be a good thread to ask the question in. We obviously will have exhaustive outline so I would say make your questions pretty specific or outside of the box. We obviously won't get to all of them but we'll grab a couple of our favorites to ask him.
  14. Thank you for the feedback! Just a response to your note on the Goodwin/Yadier comparison. I think it was less about age and more about moving on in terms of style of play and start to let these younger guys reach for a bigger role on the court and in the locker room. It was about having the decision of whether or not to bring a veteran player back or not, which is a decision that college coaches have never had like this year. But I totally agree with you on the aging part and Goodwin in his prime and like I said, I'd love to have Goodwin back if he's open to playing an undersized 4 role. I really have no interest in watching Goodwin on the ball or at the two taking shots outside of 6 feet from the rim next year and it may be a dumb opinion but it's mine and I'M STICKING TO IT!
